Hello experts,

we have got a new sonicwall 2040 firewall which is going to replace linksys firewall. I have never touched a firewall in my life. But im asked to migrate all the settings from linksys firewall to the new sonicwall 2040 firewall. I have noted all the configuration that was there on linksys firewall which seemed fairly straight forward. But unfortunately i dont find sonicwall 2040 as user friendly as linksys. Im trying to copy all the port forwarding settings which are there in linksys firewall to the sonicwall firewall....

one of the port forwading entries in linksys firewall is as follows:

ssh [TCP/22~22] -> 192.168.172.30

Now if i want to implement the same in sonicwall 2040, how can i do that? i will be really greatful if someone can give me instructions on how to do it.

thanks a lot

Regards
Vamsi

Vamsi,

Is the 2040 running SonicOS Standard or Enhanced? It will tell you on the System Status Page. Look at the firmware.

If you are running standard, it is very easy. Goto firewalls..access rules and click add.

Click Allow
Choose SSH
Leave Source alone
Choose destination as LAN and type 192.168.172.30 in the address field.
Click OK

Your done.

If you are running enhanced, let me know. It is a bit more complicated but easy to understand.

thanks a lot

These are predefined services. You cannot remove them. Their presence does not make your firewall any less secure, just easier to make changes to in the future.
